This week my birthday was Monday so we took off of school that day. Normally I would not do that but we hadn't seen Chelsea and the babies since Christmas and they wanted to come out and spend the day. My children didn't mind getting an extra day off :) By Thursday a very stressful situation I have been dealing with got the better of me and I had a horrible migraine. The children were able to complete some individual work and I gave an art assignment and a science assignment they could do on their own but the other planned work I had required me to read and that was not possible so the day didn't go as planned but we made it through.
